This was our first stay at he Lindos Blu for 1 week on bed & breakfast basis. From the minute you arrive at the beautiful reception you are greeted with 5 star service and it does not stop.
The location of the hotel is wonderful with beautiful panoramic views of the bay from every part of it.
We stayed in a junior suite, 234, which like all rooms at this hotel, had a magnificent view. It was very large, spotlessly clean and beautifully furnished. The room, the whole hotel in fact, is very modern & minimalist so if you're in to the old fashioned look this may not be the hotel for you.
There are 2 restuarents, one is fine dining, the other is the a la carte where breakfast is also served. The food in both is excellent, the wine list is very good and the service impeccable.
The pool area is first class, a heated pool which is a bonus in Greece. The waitress service from the pool bar is excellent and the sun beds are super comfortable. There did seem to be some early towel reserving of sunbeds going on which I hate but we never had trouble getting one at any time of the day so it was not a problem.
There is a beach which is not the cleanest I have been to but the sea is crystal clear and a joy to swim in. To get to the beach you need to use lifts (a total of 4 if you are located at the top of the hotel) and although I have seen some gripes about this on previous reviews, it was certainly not a problem for me as they are spotlessly clean & well maintained.
There are a couple of bars & a super market along the beach which are very pleasent but the hotel does have waiter service to its area of the beach if you prefer.
The town of Lindos is located about 1 mile away. The hotel will book you a cab which is a very short wait. It is 8 euros in to town and 6 euros back to the hotel.
The town itself is very pleasent, lots of bars & resturants located down narrow cobbled streets but most of them have roof terraces that offer views of the Acropolis. Personally, I thought the best food in town was at the Lindos Blu but the food is generally good in most of the top rated restaurants on the trip advisor top 10 that we tried.
Overall, this was a great holiday at a superb hotel that I would not hesitate to recommend. Its one of a short list of hotels I have stayed in that is actually worthy of 5 stars. I will return!
